Ohh after seeing Adensmommy's post I forgot I like Max. We'd go with Maximillian though.
DS's middle name is Finian and it was a "last-minute" decision--now I love it so much and everyone we meet loves it so that I kinda wish we had given it to him as a first name
We like Collette for a girl, but maybe not that spelling? Catherine, Kathleen, and Sarah are also fav's. I like Ingrid and Matilda but DH hates them
For a boy we like James, Nicholas, I also love Max for Maximillian, not to steal all your named
and Alexander (Xander for short)
We like British last name as first names for boys, in theory, but the problem is, we have a traditional British last name, so we run into the whole "do you have two first names? or two last names? and which is which?" problem. Our last name could totally be a first name, so. . .it can get confusing.
And it's annoying how many of the top 10 baby names right now I love. . .I had the #2 most popular baby name of my birth year and there were always a million of us. luckily an easily nicknamed name, but still not a fate I want my kid to have.
On the other hand, I am not sure I want a name so unique no one can pronounce or spell it on a second try. . .KWIM?
